      Here are my favorite reference pages relating to CIDP. You might want to actually print out some of the information since these pages come and go.

      I have been diagnosed with CIDP since 2000. I have only been treated with prednisone (and neurontin for pain).

      When you are first diagnosed one is naturally and correctly disturbed by the possible side effects of long term steroid treatment. Try to remember that not every one will get every side effect. Prednisone is cheap and works for many CIDP patients.

      Here are some reference pages to help you weigh the pros and cons with your neurologist.
